Based on what I've seen so far this year, I have a really hard time envisioning UT losing three or more games this year (bowl game excluded). They've got 4 true road games left and three of them are Baylor, Houston, and Iowa State. Some teams are going to have to pull off pretty big upsets in Austin for them to get to 3 or 4.People keep throwing Oklahoma in their with Texas. I haven't seen anything at all that leads me to believe that they've solved the multitude of problems that they had last year. I guess we'll see on Saturday how we look at home against SMU but Oklahoma looked incredibly underwhelming in that game and their other 2 games were against Jr High schools.
And let's not act like Texas is above totally blowing this thing in conference play either. No one at all would be surprised if they ended up losing 3 or 4 games again despite the win over Alabama. We've seen it from them for 14 years now. They're the clear favorite right now obviously but I don't trust Sark or that program at all.
I'm just not on this train of Texas and OU are the clear class of the conference like everyone else seems to be. Maybe that's the way it will end up but I've been watching football long enough to know that about half the teams you think are good in September end up not being there by the end of October. Right now I still think you could pick a name out of a hat between those two plus TCU, Tech, and Kansas St for who will end up winning the conference. And who knows maybe UCF even makes some noise although I highly doubt that one.
Usually they would have laid a major egg by this point in the season already. I do think this team of theirs is a good bit stronger than most UT versions of the past 10-15 years, but God do I hope I'm wrong.
